College Algebra which is more advanced, seems too overwhelming. I am constantly falling behind and I didn't take the midterm because I miserably failed the practice exam. It seems I need to go back and review the basics.

It seems I need to go back and review the basics. The hardest thing about studying math online is that there isn't anyone to walk you through problems when you don't understand how to do them. I have two suggestions besides using the obvious online resources like Khan Academy, etc... The first is to get the solutions manual for whatever textbook you're using. Instead of just having the answers to half the problems like there is in the back of the book, it will actually show the solutions for those problems stepbystep. This is very helpful. The second suggestion is to hire a local tutor who can help you with difficult concepts.

RE: College Algebra  davewill  03262019 (03262019, 11:49 AM)mikesar Wrote: Is there a solutions manual for openstax CollegeAlgebraOP? There seems to be an instructor solutions manual (which I assume has ALL the solutions rather than half like a student one would): https://openstax.org/details/books/collegealgebra?Instructor%20resources You may or may not be able to access that, and obviously you wouldn't want to use it to cheat on homework. A second choice would be to buy a different textbook that does have a solutions manual. Use it just for selfstudy. If you don't care about the edition of the text, you can usually find them dirt cheap (like $10).

This is a great suggestion. I am also looking into Modern States College Algebra course. It looks like an instructor driven video tutorials kind of system. Appreciate all the help.
